Specifications Of The Lenovo Thinksystem ST250 V2
The ThinkSystem ST250 V2 is a tower server with a single socket that companies can use in a rack. It takes up 4U of space. It relies on a single Intel Xeon or Core processor, with an Intel Xeon E-2200 eight-core processor being the most potent option. Besides, four DIMM slots are available, with 128GB of DDR4 memory. For a budget server, the storage possibilities here really shine. Hot swapping is possible for any of the eight 3.5-inch SATA/SAS drives, or you can use the sixteen 2.5-inch disks available on the front panel. You can utilize a combination of drive sizes, for example, eight 2.5-inch drives and four 3.5-inch drives.
Two additional 5.25-inch bays provide space for other peripherals. There are four PCIe expansion slots for adding low-power GPUs for AI inference, additional RAID adapters, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SAS/RAID adapters, and so on. There is a range of power options, from a static 250 watts to a hot-swappable 550 watts.
System Architecture Of The Lenovo Thinksystem ST250 V2
Part of the ST250 V2’s attraction for small organizations is its tower form factor, which is reminiscent of a huge desktop PC. There is no need for a dedicated server space or complex setup to run this system. It is perfectly suitable for use as a desk drawer. The tower’s final dimensions (WDH) are 6.9 x 17.5 x 22.8 inches, and it tips the scales at 51.94 pounds. If you want to rack mount something, you’ll need to order the rackmount kit.
Although our demo model lacks a lockable front panel, the ThinkSystem ST250 V2 is available with one on the particular order. Our system has no 5.25-inch bay devices, but it is easy to add them. We have four 3.5-inch drives in the bottom drive bay and none in the top drive bay. There is a finger loop and caddy for each 3.5-inch drive.
